1960's ludwigs that had been painted black........but look what is underneath! Perfectly preserved champagne sparkle! That's a 14" floor tom too.

For those that asked, automotive lacquer thinner does the trick (I use DuPont).  No damage left behind.  Just be sure to cover all holes so it doesn't run inside.  And...ventilation!

Wrap looks pretty vivid on that 12. The paint probably saved them from some fading. Nice work!
